Maths: We are focusing on one more or less than a number between 0-100. We have used a variety of methods to do this; base 10, hundred square and a numberline. There is also a game on Topmarks that the children have enjoyed.
With Mrs Silvester the children are looking at 2d shapes. Please discuss the shapes of objects inside and outside of your homes. Discuss the name and their properties i.e. this shape is a triangle, it has 3 corners, 3 sides and 2 faces.
There are new activities to complete on mathletics related to what we have been learning in class. Any questions please send an email or message via Class Dojo.
Literacy: We are writing sentences about our local area following our trip last week, using the photographs to help us. We are also completing a bean diary weekly. We are writing our observations of the growth of the beans that are growing in the classroom. We are working hard to remember to use capital letters at the beginning of sentences and for names and full stops at the end of the sentences.
To begin with we are focusing on the place value of a number. Thinking about our numbers to 100 and understanding how many tens and ones are in each number.
Here is a website that we will be using to support our maths and other subjects. It is a very enjoyable website with a variety of games. There are lots of different maths, English and science games for the children to enjoy if you would like to check it out.
